My tranny likes to be around 195. I think I read that they are suppose to be around 190 degrees.
Per Allpars website


Chrysler’s Dave Sowers said:
We get benefit from bringing both of them [oil and transmission fluid] up to operating temperature faster. The primary benefit comes in the transmission. In colder climates, you could drive a vehicle for hours in the winter and the transmission might never reach that 190 (F) for the most efficient operation. So what we do is use some of that hot engine coolant through the heat exchanger to bring it up to 190 as quickly as possible, and that gives us efficient operation very quickly.

That's what I get from it, 230F for the engine coolant and 195F for transmission.

Thanks Brandon and fishn4ladyz for the info...I had some overheating issues when I first got the truck so I wanted to know normal operating temps to keep an eye on it!

There is a flash for the gauge cluster now so the temp needle doesnt go up to 3/4 anymore. Had mine flashed today. Now it stays below half. Engine still gets to 230 degrees on the evic.

So 230F for coolant 195F for trans then what would be max for oil temp? My oil temp stays about 212F give or take a couple degrees - trans about 190F - coolant about 222F.

My temps have consistently been between 220 F and 228 F for the coolant. The trans runs between 170 F and 179 F. The oil temp has been between 212 F and 219 F. Blurry pic of gauges attached showing the highest I have seen. I usually have the gauges displayed while I am driving.

I take a pic with my phone about once a week when I get home from work just to have a record for myself.
